Yorkville High

School Alumni

The Alumni Committee would like to announce that their next reunion will be held on June 23, 2012 at the Wheeling Island Casino. Plans are underway and alumni will be notified of further details. They are also working to create an alumni room at the city building to house high school memorabilia recently removed from the now closed South Elementary.

It is the alumni group’s goal to create an atmosphere in which fellow graduates can visit and reminisce about their years as Yorkville High School Ductilites. The committee would like to thank the village mayor and council for allowing the use of the room in the city building. Anyone wishing to contribute to this project is asked to contact Tom Magnone at 859-2762. Any donation to assist in the room preparation would be greatly appreciated.
